What Is Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

Diabetes mellitus (type 2) is characterized by high blood sugar, relative lack of insulin and insulin resistance. It is a long term metabolic disorder.

Long term complications of diabetes are diabetic retinopathy, resulting in blindness, heart disease, strokes, kidney failure, poor flow of blood in limbs requiring amputation.

What Is High Cholesterol

Dyslipidaemia or high cholesterol indicate the imbalance of fats (or lipids) in one’s blood system.

High cholesterol or dyslipidaemia, means that there is an imbalance of fats (or lipids), circulating in one’s blood stream. The body uses cholesterol (the fatty substance) to metabolize food and also make hormones.

The following three different measurements are used to determine one’s overall lipid health:

1.    Low-Density Lipoprotein (bad cholesterol, LDL): The higher LDL, the more is the risk of cardiovascular disease. LDL obstructs the proper blood flow into the heart and other organs by building up plaque in arteries.

2.     High-Density Lipoprotein (Good cholesterol, HDL): HDL brings back the cholesterol to the liver from other parts of the body, thus removing the harmful cholesterols from your body. The higher the HDL, the better it is for the heart.

3.   Triglycerides – Also referred to as fat in the blood. This type of fat is usually found in eatable animal fats and vegetable oils. High levels of Triglycerides signify the increased risk of cardiovascular disease as it also contributes to building up of a plaque in one’s arteries

What Are The Best Foods For High Cholesterol

Different foods help lowering cholesterol in different ways. Some foods have soluble fibre that binds cholesterol in the digestive system and pushes them out of the body before they even enter the circulation.

Others give polyunsaturated fats, helpful in directly lowering LDL. Some have stanols and plant sterols that inhibit the body from absorbing cholesterol.

  • Oats. Oats give you soluble fibre, which helps in improving the cholesterol. One bowl of oatmeal, with added banana and a few strawberries, is the best breakfast.
  • Barley, other whole grains: They deliver soluble fibre, thus lowering risk of a heart disease.
  • Beans. Beans (kidney beans, garbanzos, lentils and black eyed peas) are also rich in soluble fibre.
  • Nuts: Two ounces of almonds, walnuts, peanuts etc. not only reduce LDL but also provide other nutrients which protect the heart in many ways.
  •  Vegetable oils. Use liquid vegetable oils such as sunflower, canola, and safflower instead of butter or pure ghee in cooking.
  • Citrus fruits, apples, grapes and strawberries are rich in pectin, a type of soluble fibre which lowers LDL.
  • Fish: To lower LDL, eat fish 2-3 times a week as it delivers omega 3 fats.

Foods recommended to manage overweight and obesity:

  • Foods with the high quantity of fibre as a fibre is bulky and takes longer to digest, therefore you feel full for a longer period of time. Fibre rich foods are fruits and vegetables, breakfast cereals, whole wheat bread or pasta.
  • Calcium acts with the hormones to elevate the fat metabolism, so calcium rich foods like yoghurt, cheese, kale, broccoli, milk, sardines, salmon and mackerel must be consumed.
  • Plant-based foods have high amounts of fibre, calcium, vitamin d and potassium, so must be consumed over high-calorie foods.
  • Low-calorie foods but with high nutrient value like most fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and randomly lean, baked or broiled meat can be consumed.
